This is free WordNet 3 dictionary with Ispell support for indexing inflections.
Main accent was made on simplicity and clarity of provided data- only WordNet synsets, similar words and “See also” was compiled in, all the other data like hypernyms, hyponyms, meronyms, holonyms, etc. were intentionally left out. Another important thing was indexing inflections which help to look up word definitions in real text.
This dictionary is compilation of several dictionaries- WordNet 3, Babylon and Ispell. Main reason for me to make this dictionary was need for simple and very well indexed dictionary for my e-book reader. Built-in dictionaries were great but I also wanted to add my native language- Latvian. By mixing free Babylon Latvian dictionary (comparably small) with WordNet 3.0 (one of the biggest out there) it was possible to achieve greater range of word definitions and detail than it would be possible just by using Latvian dictionary. Also WordNet synsets were used to expand Latvian definitions to synsets that didn’t have Latvian definition. In addition Ispell spellchecking dictionary was used to add inflections for indexing.
This effort was made to satisfy my need for better dictionary but I am happy to provide this dictionary free to anyone who can find it useful. In future I intend to mix more languages with WordNet dictionary as this is easily done now 😉
